About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hitchhiking from Nova Scotia to Portland, Oregon and everywhere in between..

ABOUT ME

My current adventure should look something like this...

I am a big goofy guy that cannot stop laughing and smiling. I am one third hippie, two thirds philosopher, and three thirds mountain man. I love an interesting character and harsh adventure that expands character. I am a jack of all trades and a master of hitchhiking. I love a warm and fuzzy conversation. I love and hate America. I cannot dance or sing to save all the trees in the world.
